Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Without language skills, Larry had a life of solitary confinement. Most people assumed that he was mentally retarded and had nothing to communicate. Then he discovered assisted typing with a computer. With facilitated communication, Larry has been able to show the world that he is the same as everybody else. Being able to communicate, has transformed his life. For Larry, painting is language — through his art, he communicates complex views on autism and society.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


by Cathryn McEwen

If I have a camera in my hand, I invariably get in very close to the subject. The personal space is invaded and there is a connection between myself and what I am investigating – with my camera lens, or my own eyes. “Up close and personal” is how I like to see the world - to look closer and deeper...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: The recently opened gallery, Art Studios Cooperative, in Gosford NSW, renews my faith in art and in artists. It's the type of art that I, personally, admire - art that is of a high quality, technically masterful, art that has depth, where the translation from concept to actual artwork actually works. And yes, it's vastly different from the art that originates in an art therapy session or art that is done wholly and solely AS therapy. What it does have in common, is that capacity of art to to work with symbols to engage the unconscious and thereby to clarify, to make clear our thinking, our perspective, to go more deeply into ourselves and to return with the gifts of that journey.

by Jean Pollack, PhD

Has life become just another thing to check off your to-do list? In my practice, many young people in their 20’s and 30’s have similar unconscious or conscious life goals that they want in a specified order — particular achievements to cross off “their list...”

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: In this article, Jean Pollack helps you step back from your fast-paced, social media-driven life so that you can develop a rhythm that flows rather than resists your natural urge to rest or create. When you live a creative life, you are able to enjoy yourself, understand your purpose, know yourself and create so that you move toward more happiness.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Children at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital, St.Vincent, receive art therapy to help them deal with anxiety, an adverse diagnosis, pain and the possibility of a lifelong illness. Doing art helps them gain a sense of control, of comfort, of being able to play in sometimes traumatic circumstances. The art therapy program can also leave the parents with much-loved mementos created by their children.

by Elizabeth Geron Countess

My platform, during my reign as Miss East Coast Teen America, is to help people of all ages build a positive self-image. Like any skill, developing a positive self-image takes time and sometimes a new way of thinking...


Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Elizabeth Geron Countess is Miss East Coast, a delegate for the Miss Teen America Pageant 2014. She appreciates the opportunity this experience is giving her to meet with children and adults to speak about the art of building a positive self-image. Building self-worth takes time and often a new way of thinking. Elizabeth is passionate about assisting people on that journey. She is a high school junior and plans to attend university to earn the degrees necessary to become a cognitive psychotherapist.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Hand artists are taking their art off canvas or the page and onto their hands. These paintings are so creative and the animals look so real! This is the best collection of a variety of different hand paintings that I could find.

Editor's Note: Marina Petro's paintings are inspiring and uplifting. They hold a healing presence that all can feel the energies of the guides, angels and powers that be that have a profound affect. She can feel into the soul of the needs of people and then paint what they need to transform. We all have the ability to heal and it is through color and Marina's ability to see into the other world, the veiled spiritual world, that she can bring healing and soulful inspiration to those in need. This artist is truly a remarkable and soulful woman who wants to hold the world in light, color and beauty...

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: The Mental Health Council of Australia reports that one in five Australians currently suffer from mental illness annually.

In the midst of these alarming statistics, we turn to Denmark, a country leading the field of research in a different form of treatment for mental health patients - art therapy. The Kunst Museum is the leading institution in Denmark providing this therapy.

Meet patient and employee, Preben Stig Madson, who tells his story.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Art therapy and using art as therapy can be effective for mental illness where other therapies fail.

Interviewed by Karen Adler, Dip Transpersonal Art Therapy
ATH Asst. Editor of Arts & Art Therapy

Phil Kent is my new landlord here in beautiful Killcare, on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia. Phil was a builder before he retired and leaving the building trade has enabled him to spend more time on his painting. Like most people I know who are involved in art, Phil doesn’t fit the stereotype of the mad artist. He’s someone who knows that, as with most things in life, it’s a matter of practicing your craft, working at it until, little by little, you start to see progress...

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Learn about art as therapy. What is art therapy? For artist, Alison Sigethy, art has a meditative quality that helps our minds to slow down and relax. The longer version of this video will be released later.

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Ellen Joseph

Expansive, peaceful views of nature, with calm waters and verdant trees and colorful flowers, are some of the most psychologically beneficial images for patients who are recovering from surgery, according to the findings of Roger S. Ulrich, PhD, Director of The Center for Health Design. Dr. Ulrich's research proved that such positive scenes of nature can substantially improve patient outcomes...

 

Editor's Note: Using evidence-based design, artist Ellen Joseph combines research and art to produce paintings and murals that reduce the negative emotional and physiological effects of stress.

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
